DSLRs for staff and student use
I'm undecided between a pair of low-end Nikons / Canons or getting fixed-lens Olympus models. These aren't for Art/Media - they have their own kit - they're loanable cameras. The Olympus ones would be harder to break (no chance of dirt getting in when swapping lenses) but a Nikon would allow us to use some of the Art depts kit if we wanted something exotic.
I know what I'd buy for me, but the school can't afford multiples of that. So what have you bought, how robust are they?
SD card media is greatly preferred (we have readers all over the place and built into most staff laptops).
